MAYOR NICHOLS' METHOD.
Bo Will Tolornto No Nonsense with Keep
t era of Dowdy Houses, '
Among the disreputable houses
which (Mayor Nichols has waged war
on is one on Canal street, kept by a
woman named Alice Phillips.' The
mayor'notlfled her to appear at his of
fice to answer charges ntrainst her
house by the police. The Phillips -woman
Ignored the notice and the mayor
Imposed a line and costs amounting to
$35, as provided by the city ordinance.
She failed to appear to pay the line,
and then the mayor dispatched on offi
cer to close up the house and an at
tachment on the prpcrty was also Is
sued. Then Miss Phillips hastened
around to the mayor's office and paid
the fine and costs. With tears in her
eyes she upbraided the mayor for
"ruining- her. business." The mayor in
formed her -that his purpose -was to
ruin the kind of business she was en
paged In all over the city, and ex
pressed gratification that he had been
so successful in her case. Miss Phil
lips added that as soon as Bhe could
find a purchaser for her property she
-would shake the dust of "Wllkes-llarre
off her shoes and never again set foot In
the townaslongasshe lived. The mayor
remarked that in this determination
she had his good wishes and hoped
she would speedily find a purchaser for
her property. ' If Mayor Nichols suc
ceeds in permanently closing up the in
famous den no long known as "0 Canal
street," he will deserve the hearty en
conlums of the community. All but
the criminal classes are genuinely glad
that P. M. Nichols was re-elected
mayor last February. He has the grit
to do a great reform work for this city,
and he is applying himself to the task.
THAT MARKS BUILDING.
Homo More Trooblo by the CMy Councils
That Will Delay Operations.
M. Marks Is the owner of the triangu
lar lot at the corner of public square
and South- (Main street. He has torn
down the old building and proposed to
erect a handsome new one on the Bite.
The old structure projected, as ia
claimed, beyond the now established
line, and councils proposed to co'mpel
Mr. Marks to place the new building
on line to conform to the Lanlng build
ing. Mr. Marks appealed to the court,
the Injunction was dismissed and Mr.
Marks was getting ready to commence
the construction of his building on the
old line-. Councils has now confronted
Mr. Marks wHh an old ordinance re
quiring him to make the cellar wall
twenty-two Inches thick, the first story
wall sixteen inches, and the other
stones twelve inches. Mr. Marks' con
tracts with th builders call for a build
ing of iron and steel, filled in with
brick and fire-proof, the walls to be
eight Inches In thickness. Councils has
Interposed, and Marks cannot go on
with his building operations unless he
makes new contracts, and, naturally,
the structure will cost a great deal
It Is claimed that council has not
heretofore enforced the ordinance re
ferred to against any one, and that
there is some ulterior motive in the
war against Mr. Marks. If it can be
shown that the .building Marks pro
poses to erect will not be a safe one
then, of course, he should not be per
mitted to erect it. If, on the other
hand, it can be shown by competent
architects that the structure will be
safe, then the annoyance should oease.
City councils cannot afford to annoy
and harrass citizens who desire to Im
prove the town and modernize it by the
erection of fine buildings.
S. S. CHAN'S DEFALCATION.
First Reports Wcro Greatly Exaggerated.
Th. 8am Involved Not Large.
Later developments Indicate that the
defalcation of S. S. Chan is not nearly
so serious an affair as was at first Inti
mated. His accounts with the Lehigh
Valley Railroad company and the sev
eral steamship lines he represented as
ticket agent are found to be all
straight. Chan acted for a large num
ber of foreigners in sending money to
their triends in Europe. The allega
tion Is that he has applied to his own
use a sum something less than $3,000
of money intrusted to him to be for
warded to the old country. About two
months ago Chan went to Europe, as
if now believed, for the purpose of
raising money among his friends there,
or from a family estate In which he has
an Interest, for the purpose of making
good his shortage. It Is known to some
of his friends that he had speculated
and lost about $10,000 and it was in
these .transactions he used the money
belonging to his clients.
Few people here are ready to believe
that 8. S. Chan Is a dishonest man.
During the past year he had oppor
tunities to embezzle much larger
amounts had he been so inclined. His
many friends here are not prepared to
desert him Just yet, and It is believed
he will In some way recover himself
and emerge from his present predica
ment without serious dishonor.
SAYS IT WAS MURDER.,
Investigating tho Death of John Bslleo
tine, the Old Plymouth Soldier.
County Detective Eckert has been in
vestigating the death of John Ballcn
tlne, who was found dead with a
crushed skull at the foot of the stairs
in his house at Plymouth one morning
about a week ago. The coroner's Jury
rendered a verdict that Ballentlne came
to his death from the effects of a blow
struck by some person unknown to .the
Jury. There is as yet no clue to the
perpetrator of this crime. Robbery was
undoubtedly the motive of the murder
er, as Ballentlne was known to have
his quarterly pension check cashed a
few days before, and the money could
not be found. He also had some other
money, at least so it is alleged by some
who were his friends. This is another
of those mysterious murders that occur
so frequently In Luzerne county. De
tective skill might unravel the mystery,
as It did the murder of Barney Reick,
and it is hoped the county commission
ers will have the courage to place the
case Into the hands of the same aetcc-
tlve agency . that did such effective
work, after a lapse of fifteen months,
in the Relck case. Sensible people do
not complain when money Is Judiciously
expended In the hunting down of mur
derers. The average county detective
has none of the skill and resources of
the professional. Mr. Eckert is an ex
cellent man, but being known to every
body It cannot be expected that he
would be successful In unraveling mys
A Successful Enterprise at the Home for

A WICKED ENOCH ARDEN.
A Vory Rotnnntio Story of a Luzcrno
County Man-Perhaps It Is All True.
Yesterday's News-Dealer contained a
story concerning a former Luzerne
county man which, if true, is rather
romanitlo and Interesting. The story as
told by the News-Dealer Is as follows:
In 1861, when the war broke out, John
Miller, of Lebanon township, bade his
wife and chlldrenl farewell and an
nounced his purpose to go to Harris
burg and enlist for the war. He never
was heard of again until this week,
when an alleged California attorney
appeared here to make inquiry for the
wife and'chlldren of the aforesaid Mil
ler. It is said that Miller, when he left
home in 18G1, eloped with a widow who
had also been a resident of Lebanon
and the two went to California, where
Miller Is now living, a wealthy old
man past three score years and ten.
He wanted to make amends to his de
serted wife and children. Mrs. Miller
is dead, but four of the five children are
living, and two of these have been Inter
viewed by the California attorney, and
will accompany him to San Francisco
to meet their father. The woman with
whom Miller eloped Is also dead, but
two children survive. This Is the
News-Dealer's romantic story, end it
may be founded on fact.
It Is apparent thus early that there
will be a lively contest In the Republi
can county convention over the selec
tion of delegates and alternates to the
next national convention of the Re
publican party. During the past few
days It has been quietly whispered that
there Is a plan on foot to elect these
delegates at the county convention of
tho present year, so ns to avoid an
early county convention next year. The
aspirants will be numerous, and the
attempt will be made to select men
who can be controlled by the state
leaders who are Interested In having
a state delegation that will obey orders
In the national convention. Among
those whose names are already sug
gested for delegates are Hon. Charles
A. Miner, Hon. Henry W. Palmer,
Judge Harding, Hon. Charles D. Fos
ter, Edward H. Chase, J. C. Powell,
County Chnlrman Robinson, ex-Congressman
George W. Shonk, Congress
man Lelsenrlng, ex-Senator Morgan B.
Williams, Hon. Theodore Hart, of
Pittston, and Alvan Markle, of Hazle
ton. The Hazleton region will demand
one of the delegates and Pittston will
also claim recognition. Wllkes-Barre
will, of course, claim both delegates
and offer one alternate each to Hazle
ton and Pittston,
Following are the delegates from the
Republican league of Luzerne county
to the state convention of Republican
clubs to be held at York: R. P. Robin
son and T. C. Parker, of Wllkes-Barre;
A. D. Reese, of Parsons, and Theodore
Hart, of Pittston. Alternates, L. C.
Darte, of Kingston; A. L. Williams, of
Wllkes-Barre; C. E. Keck, of Ashley,
and I. G. Eckert, of Forty-Fort.
All that the people of Luzerne county
demand in the way of new appoint
ments is that the county remain a
separate congressional district, that It
bo alloted the two state senators, and
the eight representatives to which It is
entitled under the provisions of the con
stitution. The county Is entitled to all
this by reason of Its more than 200,000
population. Less than 'this is unjust
The Farr Law.
The Farr compulsory education law
will not create much of a seTi.atlon In
the city of Wllkes-Barre when the time
comes for inforclng. This is one of the
communities where there was little need
of such a drastic statute. The city Js
amply supplied with every accommo
dation for all the children of school age,
and there is no evidence that any con
siderable number of parents do not vol
untarily and gladly avail themselves
of the facilities for educating their chil
dren. In the outlying wards there may
be a few foreigners who permit their
children to remain away from school,
but the number is exceedingly limited,
Wllkes-Barre is noted for the number
and excellence of Its public school build
ings. Added to these are numerous
private and parochial schools that take
high rank and are well supported. The
enactment, of the Fair bill will make no
perceptible difference In this city.
The Ivorltcs" Convention.
The miscarriage of the report of the
final session of the Ivorltes convention
accounts for its non-appearance In yes
terday's Issue of The Tribune. The
election of officers resulted as follows:
President, William Hughes, of Ver
mont; vice president, Rhys Morgans, of
Wllkes-Barre; secretary, Daniel Bevan,
of Plains; treasurer, D. L. Lloyd, of
Pittsburg. Olyphant was selected as
the place for the next convention. The
convention Just closed contained rep
sentatlves from Pennsylvania, Ver
mont, New York, Colorado, Illinois,
Ohio and Maryland. The Ivorltes is
a purely Welsh organization, and is
growing in strength in the United
